Eh? Well, thanks for the advise and it is taken. In reality, though, I do place a certain character value on my belongings. I'm just a college student and I might just buy a new car, but believe me, I've never strayed from reality. Reality is, the Saab guys sure make a safe and unique car and that's gotta count for something. Sean.
